Good Day World!
Casting all pretenses aside about being a law-abiding president, Trump has decided to defy the Supreme Court who told him to come back with a real excuse for adding a divisive question to this year's census.
When the census ruling went against Trump and his team he quickly replaced the DOJ lawyers (who stood by the ruling) with a team of politically appointed Civilian Division lawyers.
Was it because the DOJ lawyers realized what they were doing was wrong? Were there a few DOJ lawyers left that still believed in the law of the land and ethics? Did they piss him off for not breaking the law?
More than likely.
Trump thinks that he needs to keep the issue going for his base who enjoy defying laws that don't favor them. They expect him to flaunt every law and tradition that defines our country.
By trying to make an end-run around the final arbiter of law in this nation, Trump is showing us who he really is, and has been his entire life...a corrupt con man with the biggest ego in America.
All we can hope for is that our laws and courts continue to stand strong during this unprecedented presidential assault until the orange anus is impeached, or loses the 2020 election.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
